Riley ruled out for Dee
Dundee will be without Nicky Riley for their home clash with Irn-Bru First Division leaders Ross County.
Winger Riley is ruled out of the match with a back problem
Talks to bring former Scotland internationalist Nigel Quashie to the club continue, however manager Barry Smith is not convinced a deal will be completed in time for him to feature.
Defender Rhys Weston is included despite breaking his nose last weekend and then receiving a further blow to the same spot against Falkirk.
On-loan St Johnstone striker Carl Finnigan could start after a goalscoring substitute appearance in midweek.
"We have fought back to get draws in recent games which shows great character," said Smith of his side's recent form. "But I would much rather that we got in front in games and fought to hold onto a lead."
Ross County could welcome back midfielder Stuart Kettlewell for their trip to face the third-placed Dee after the former Queen's Park and Clyde man's groin injury eased.
Defender Marc Fitzpatrick remains out with a knee knock for a game that County boss Derek Adams is looking forward to.
He said: "We did well down at Dens Park earlier in the season when we won 2-1 and a repeat of that would be great.
"It is always a good ground to play at as their fans make a lot of noise and create a good atmosphere and with over 5,000 fans expected to be at this one it should be a really good occasion."
Adams admitted he is an admirer of new Dark Blues recruit Carl Finnigan.
He added: "Dundee have made a really good signing in Carl Finnigan and we need to watch him."
Dee held by Staggies
Dundee's hopes of closing the gap on Ross County were hit following their 1-1 draw against the First Division leaders.
Ryan Conroy's penalty drew the home side level after Stuart Kettlewell had put the visitors in front, but the Dee were unable to go on and claim all three points.
The Staggies took the lead after 11 minutes when Richard Brittain's right-wing cross found Kettlewell who finished neatly from six yards.
Dundee equalised in the 33rd minute when Conroy powered his penalty past goalkeeper Michael Fraser after midfielder Paul Lawson had brought down Carl Finnigan inside the box.
There were few chances in the match thereafter, and it was actually the visitors who came closest to scoring again when defender Scott Boyd headed over the bar from six yards on the hour mark.
